As we posted yesterday
Pope John Paul II is fading fast. If you pray, say one for a great and faithful servant of God.
The story is here.
His heart and kidneys are failing, and it has been reported that the Pope has lost consciousness, probably from complications of the infection he has been suffering through.
The Cardinals have been called, and the Pope is not expected to last through the night (it's night in Rome now).
Update: Reuters, FoxNews, and CNN are now reporting that the Pope has died. Rest in Peace, Father Karol. Or perhaps not. Seems that was a premature announcement.
Here's one of my favorite pictures of John Paul II, with a marsupial friend. The photo was taken on his trip to Australia in 1986:
